Travel Tips for Waiheke Island
Internet connection, Ostend.
Being on an island can mean a certain kind of isolation, but you don't need to be away from your friends and email for long.
KLPNZ.net Café, c/- Rockgas Waiheke, 35/37 Tahi Rd, Ostend, Waiheke Island have a wonderful little internet area. tel: 09 - 372 3606.
The people here were so kind and even gave me a free ground coffee for free! No I can't say everyone will receive this, but it shows how welcoming they were when I was there. $5 (New Zealand dollars) per hour was reasonable too!
It was such an unusual location. Amongst the industrial area, and in the Rockgas building, but there it was and I found my connection!
Waiheke Wild - Olive Grove
Waiheke Wild is a business on Waiheke that specialises in the making of Olive Oil and Dukkah which it sells. They also run tours of the Olive Mill and Grove.
You can find Waiheke Wild on the road that leads out to Stoney Batter on your right.
Only 35 minutes by ferry from Auckland, Waiheke Island is a completely different world. Putting it simply - stunningly beautiful.
It supports some 8000 souls and is approx 95kms square. Inhabitants are two kinds - long stay and newcomers. Long stayers are of the alternative, arty lifestyle, pretty laidback, very friendly. There's little love lost between them and the newcomers, who are seen as the rich kids who are buying up land and building hyper-modern homes looking out to sea and who either helicopter in from Auckland or drive their 4X4 from the car ferry terminal without noticing the local community. In a nutshell, they are not contributing to the Waiheke way of life (and at same time pushing prices up). Sadly, its not a unique story.
But fear not - its not exactly open warfare in the lanes of the island-:) Make an effort, and you'll be welcomed.
